Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This is a common problem with many machines.
I suspect that the conditioner/softener tray needs a thorough clean,
paying particular attention to the sentences in BOLD ;-0)
-------------------------------------
Remove the complete drawer. To do this you will have to do one of the following-

  • Top catch- push down the lip/catch at the middle rear and pull the drawer out (that's how our Bosch one is removed)
  • release the catches underneath (our daughter's Indesit) or
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath.
One of these should enable you remove it
(I am having to guess some of the following!)
Once out identify which tray is for the conditioner- the others are simply 'chutes' and open-ended.
It will normally have some sort of cover over it which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. On some models there is just a small individual cap over the tube. The tube is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.
If this does not work, pull out the dispenser drawer far enough to be able to just see the softener tray, select the (final?) rinse and check that water is entering the tray. If it isn't there is a fault with the water distribution and an engineer call is required ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

My Bosch classix 1400 smells vile, its a rotting smell. I have tried several machine cleaners. Nothing seems to work.


I'm guessing that you use mainly biological detergents, and low temperature washes?

Just put the machine on its hottest wash, preferably 90 deg C. If you can get it to that temperature on a delicates cycle, then even better (water level is higher in delicates). A little chlorine-based cleaner, e.g. Milton or VWP, will help.

Once a bacterial biofilm has started growing, retail 'machine cleaners' can't properly penetrate it (and why would they ~ the makers want you to keep coming back for more). High temperature will always break down the biofilm.

Bosch maxx 1000 - when finished cycle, leaves central fabric conditioner drawer full of water + trace of condtioner.


Check that the hose that connects the drawer to the tub is clean, fabric conditioner normally gunks up especially on colder wash cycles.

Conditioner is staying in draw when water should be feeding into draw at end of cycle it is going into both other draws but not the conditiner one any ideas


Hi, welcome to Fixya. Immediately what comes to mind, actually two things. Fabric softner can often be too thick to dispense properly in front load dispenser's unless deluted half & half with water before adding. The other thing is this, it could be the water inlet hoses connected backwards, i.e. Hot going to cold and cold to hot at the washer, hence in the rinse cycle when cold water should enter the fabric softner chamber it doean't. Let me know what you find as I will look for your reply. Thanks for visitng "fixya". Please take a moment and rate this info accordingly but also let me know if you need further assistance. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

My washing machine isnt accepting fabric conditioner


have you lifted up the conditioner flap on the drawer, you would of seen a long plastic tube sticking up, this tube gets blocked from time to time resulting in the softner not going into the machine. if you have cleaned this tube when you took the drawer out, then the only other cause is the solonoid vavle is the fault. this is easily replaced.
if you have any difficulties, you may if you wish, email me at appliancesdav@hotmail.com

Bosch classix 1000 express fabric conditioner won't empty


Get a piece of stiff wire, and make a right angled bend at the end of it, then poke it in all the holes on the top of the soap drawer compartment, this should solve your prob.
Please rate my solution.,
Thanks.

My bosch classix washing machine is not dispensing the fabric conditioner properly. Often the fabric conditioner is left in the dispenser unused, just now it went in with the washing powder. It has...


The water going in to the dispenser is blocked by sludge.
Remove the dipenser tray.
Look up inside the tray hole, at the 'roof' of the tray hole, and there are four holes (square on my machine) where the water flows in - in the middle of the 'roof'. These will be blocked with sludge. Try to poke them clear with a nylon tie or plastic coated wire - should go in a few inches.
It worked for me.
